I have an older dell laptop that worked fine, albeit slow. I was going to factory reset it. I have a USB of win 10 that works perfectly. I deleted the partitions and reformatted.
THen I tried to reinstall but it wanted the admin password. NO CLUE> Never had one, never remember setting anything. So there is NO OS on it and it will go NO further from boot/ set up screens and just locked message.

IS there ANY way to get into this? If I put a new Hard drive in, could I set it up or would it still be locked? ( motherboard?) I have never killed on in 20 yr and hate to give up on this one.
Thanks , Kitten:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
